Dude, please, if you are insuating that he had a decent game, then i think you have low expectations. The guy hasn't sniffed a sack in three games, he's decent against the run, thats' it. But he's an OLB, his priority is to put pressure on the qb which up to now, he's been nonexistent..

I think Mercilus >>>>>> Reed.

Lumping them together may be unfair.

Dude, if you are insuating (sic) that 7 tackles and a bunch of hurries is a bad day for an OLB, then I think you don't know what you're talking about.

Why can't we give Willie Jefferson a chance at Brooks Reed's OLB spot, I mean really what's it going to hurt to try. What we're doing now isn't working and maybe he'll succeed where Reed is failing.

Do you not think that the coaches have not considered this change? Do you think that the coaches have not broken down game and practice film and think that Brooks is better at the position than Jefferson?

I've been trying to defend Sharpton for the longest, but yesterday he really upset me on one play, the play where Pierce walked into the end zone. Sharpton was looking at a big hole that he could have shot & got Pierce in the backfield.

He didn't shoot it, he watched it stay open for a long time & damn near celebrated Pierce's touch down, knowing he was as responsible for it as any Raven.

Thinking about it and doing are 2 different things. Like I said, give it a try, what's it going to hurt because what your doing now isn't working.

So...... what did you think of Whitney last week?

One of his sacks he was spying Russell Wilson, so he didn't really compete against another player. They all count, but I think he had a good enough game without that gimme sack.

Not saying he's arrived as a pass rusher, but he's still showing good effort & continuous improvement. He's going to get a bunch of sacks before it's all over & he's getting better against the run. He looks like he's going to be a well rounded player.

At the very least he is in the picture a lot, the defense will have to account for him anytime he is out there. You need to have that kind of player on a defense.

He was out on the field for a few plays in the second half this week, didn't get a chance to see how well he did though.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I seem to remember him on the field and looking confused as Lynch strolled into the endzone untouched.

think mercilus is stepping up. nice to see him get a few sacks in the seattle game.

brooks reed seems to be losing his game time to swearinger as wade seems to love that 3 safety package.

Name the two Seahawks tackles that played Sunday! (Hint: Their names were not Okung and Giancomini)

It's encouraging, but he's not going to get to play against second stringers the rest of the season. Brooks Reed was better than he has been but has been terrible all season. Kinda disappointed in both of them but moreso in Mercilus due to draft position, who he gets to play next to, and name potential.

I haven't had any issues with Mercilus thus far rushing the passer. He has had a sack in every game except for the Titans one but still registered three quarterback hurries that game. We're talking a guy that got no preseason snaps and was injured during that time. So he came in cold yet still is progressing with each week. It's exactly what we should expect and want to see. Now it comes down can he keep it up and continue to progress.
